We got the donation links fixed today working with a friend Dawn Griffith Ranieri of “TNT Removale and Disposal”
https://www.facebook.com/DawnSocialMediaCoach Without Dawns’ help it would still not work. Thank you Dawn! Both Tom and Dawn of TNT have donated items to our mission, that will help furnish the homes we are putting Homeless Veterans and others in need of a living space where they can live with others in the same situation, helping eachother as a family unit. These “Sahred Housing Homes” are a safe environment, close to public transportation, they have a laundry facility in the basement, and they all share the Kitchen, Bathrooms, and the dining rooms. Both of our homes have 3 bedrooms, all having new carpeting and cabinets and appliances. We furnish the homes entirely with donated house hold items from the general public. We need about 20 Twin Bunk Beds and mattresses to put in the homes so we can utilize the bedroom space to the best of our ability which gives the Veterans more room for their personal items like clothes, a desk etc. We do not put junk in the homes. We are in need of dishes, pots and pans, bedding, shower curtains, small kitchen appliances, washers and dryers, refridgerators, freezers and any other usable household items to make these houses a Home for our Vets!
Here is a recent video we just put on youtube, a testimony of Joe Feteko, a man we met at a local shelter that came to me after I spoke at CityTeam offering the people there a place to live. Please watch the video and hear from Joe what he has seen and become a part of since his release from prison. Click here to see the video: http://youtu.be/uOphhIeffOg

After meeting with the owners and the family several times we have Great News! We were just blessed to get the free use of their huge property that will be perfect for our mission! The property has three buildings on it, one is a home with 10 bedrooms, the other was a nursery which has many other rooms that can also be used as bedrooms, a place to hold praise and worship services and bible studies, Donation/Distribution Center, and a garage. We’d be able to house and place about 60 Veterans that are disabled and homeless there! It has a huge kitchen which will be a soup kitchen and to prepare meals to feed the homeless and do fundraising dinners. We need donations to get materials to do some repairs to get the place to pass city code because while the site was vacant since Sept 2013, people stole a lot of the copper wiring and copper pipes for the water throughout the home including the baseboard heating panels in every room that all now have to be repaired before any service can be turned on to make the home habitable again, fees for permits for all the construction including a roof repair, to buy items we need that we can’t get donated to make the repairs and get furniture, Beds, Dressers, appliances for the kitchen, TV’s, couches, etc, and security deposit to get all the utilities turned on, water and electric. Please share this information with everyone you know so those that are able to make a donation can do so, and those wanting to volunteer at any level will also be able to do so. We need to immediately raise about $10,000.00 This is a huge property which will enable us to have a huge produce garden giving free produce to families in need as well as adding on to the building for more bedrooms. We need either a camper or RV donated or the use of one donated to prevent any further destruction and theft of any more copper or anything else they’d like to steal. Click on either link to make a donation. Even One Dollar will help if everyone does it, if you can give more please do! http://igg.me/p/710475/x/1061089 and http://igg.me/p/710475/x/1061089
Here are two pictures of the property:

Pastor is meeting a woman Sat May 19, 2013 at 1pm to go see the home that she owns a former mansion, a home that has somewhere between 10 & 18 bedrooms to use to put Homeless and Disabled Homeless Veterans in! We will have to make some repairs like a new roof, plumbing, and a new heater so far to get the Certificate Of Occupancy. We need Volunteer contractors and labors to help do the work and others to help with the landscaping and make a garden. Let us know if you can help or donate materials or a monetary donation to help us get this home for homeless Veterans open real fast! Call Pastor’s cell or email him all listed below.
April 9 2013: On Sunday April 7th Pastor William was on his Scooter Cart selling his fundraising Gourmet Lollipops when about 6:30 pm a few young boys stole a few of the lollipops. Pastor seen them trying to hide them and told them it is not a good thing to do to steal as Jesus is watching them, to put them back. Which the boy did. Then an adult started yelling at the Pastor from his second floor window saying “Don’t point your finger at that boy! I will make a call and take all your lollipops!” Pastor pulled away on his cart as to prevent an altercation. A few homes further down the same block one of the other neighbors commented on what he just saw happen, telling Pastor to call the police. Pastor told him that Jesus seen what happened, and he states that “Vengence is mine I shall repay” also stating how the bible also explains about stealing from God, as the funds being raised were to help homeless disabled Veterans. Pastor went to the rear of the cart to assist someone wanting to buy a few of the lollipops when then he noticed that the kids had stole an entire box of the lollipops, about $100.00 in value, which he still has to pay for as he got them on a 30 day net basis from his supplier. Pastor had just restarted selling the lollipops this past Saturday after a very long cold and rainy winter which prevented him from any out door fundraising efforts which is very much needed to prevent homelessness of several Disabled Veterans and a disabled woman, that were all homeless that Pastor has put up in rented apartments. They are all fighting Social Security for their disabilites. The utilities are about to be shut off as well as eviction from lack of fundraising to assist them. You can help prevent them from becoming evicted and help prevent their utilities from being shut off by making a donation by clicking the link above.
